HAHAHA! Where do I even start with this child. If he was my first born he would be my only child. He climbs things, throws things, yells no when i tell him to do something, he is very busy. He is in a toddler bed as he decided being caged in way overrated and escaped. He is a good eater, good sleeper and he is a good kid. He is just so much more busy at this age then the others were so it drives me nuts. He's fallen down the stairs, climbs out of his high chair, climbs chairs on to the table, gets stools to climb on to the counters. Oh and his pitching things... ugh! Something is going to go through a window or my tv here soon. But he no matter how busy he is, he is so adorable!

Kaiden has come such a long way over the past few months, with his speech. I have to say that I am very impressed with Miss. Shelby. I also think that his school has done alot. We went through a long period of seperation anxiety with him going to school, now however he has no problem seeing me go. He knows I will come back to pick him up. He is a little bully as well. I'm not sure if it's his frusteration getting the best of him or he is just plain mean. He gets so hyper and excited when there are older people around that give him attention. Climbing on them, pulling them.. etc. He just loves people. Now, he is not very fond of his sisters. He pulls their hair, pinches, pushes and just plain fights with them. He has even given boston a few pushes here and there. I hope when summer rolls around and there is more for him to do, he will get better. maybe he is bored?

Bubba (Brianna) is doing awesome as well. She loves kindergarten. Her teacher adores her. She is moving right along with school, another smarty pants on my hands. She is still the little mommy around here. Trys to help with the boys, its more annoying then helpful. She also has a tendency to be a bully. She has middle child syndrome sometimes. She has also become quite the little tattle tale. I have to say though, her and her sister both help out nicely with their chores!


Cassidy is such a big girl now and you can see it! There aren't any baby looks left to her. Her attitude also shows it! She is starting to talk back, move her head when she thinks she is right and tries to get her point across to me. She is doing great in school. She is ahead in math and reading, half way through 2nd grade she is on a 4th grade level. What is odd though, is her reading is on 4th grade but she is always asking me how to spell things. I tend to think this is because she is lazy! Her socializing skills are getting the best of her right now as well. If she would just shut her trap, her teacher wouldn't have to yell at her nearly as often. She is growing like a weed. I am having to buy her bigger pants, well it seems like daily but not quite. She is so darn tall.

Starting... over!

I love to blog I really do! However there are some things that prevent me from doing it as much as I would like to. One would be the fact that I like to write everything that is on my mind. I want people to read but there are somethings I don't want some people to read, if you know what I mean. Well, like my in-laws, they don't deserve to read about our family or see pictures of our kids. But I have decided from here on out, I just don't care anymore! I know that they are no longer a part of our family, almost a year since any contact, I think that speaks for itself. Then there are the people I fear are stalking me. I don't care about them either. Like the people who automatically assume when your husband is deployed you screw around. Does it really look like I have time to get my groove on with all I have to deal with? Don't ya think my kids would blow me in? And well, I actually love my husband (well, we I will discuss him later! lol), I have been with him 10 years, I have dealt with a lot, I am not going anywhere quickly. How about the people who like to see what you are doing, just to talk about it? Yeah, I don't care about them either. Another thing is time. I spend a lot of time on Facebook but I can't find time to blog. It doesn't make much sense. Blogging is therapy for me. I thought about it the other day, how I should have journaled (in pen not online) or kept a blog up this entire deployment and gave it to Dan at the end to fill him in on all the things I forget. A bit too late now. So if you don't know, Dan deployed in late august. This deployment as been one serious roller coaster that is for sure. But here we are still trucking along and quite nicely if I might add. I will be doing a separate blog entry to give a small little update on all our family members, so come back soon :)
